Final Smash Glee Club/Shoot-'Em-Up

The Chrous Kids makes their first appearance as a playable character to the Super Smash Bros. franchise in Super 5mash Bros. 5. The Chorus Kids are from the Rhythm Heaven series and encountered in the mini-game Glee Club. Within Super Smash Bros., they incorporate a number of attacks that utilize tempo and rhythm as well as content from within the Rhythm Heaven series.


The Chorus Kids appears as a trio: the main Chorus Kid who does the attacking followed by the other two Chorus Kids. The Chorus Kids are a rhythm based fighter whose attacks are based off a beat that is created by the other two Chorus Kids. They perform this beat by clapping and will change in tempo and timing on occasion. Attacks that are inputted on the beat maximizes the knockback and the damage thus allowing the Chorus Kids to land powerful hits that can do high damage and knockback. However, these attacks are considered whiffs if they fail to be inputted and land. They will only stop clapping if they are hit or interrupted by an outside force. This includes any sorts of attacks, barriers, projectiles, or forces. Examples includes regular and special attacks, Fox's Blaster, Mario's F.L.U.D.D., and items like the Gust Bellows. If one of the Chorus Kids are KO'd, the tempo slows down and the amount of damage done on each beat is significantly reduced. If the player has high amounts of damage, the beats come quicker and more often while lower damage percentages results in slow beats. If both Chorus Kids besides the main one are KO'd, then the remaining Chorus Kid's damage output is severely reduced. Therefore, it is important to keep your team safe by attacking and moving.

In terms of gameplay, the Chorus Kids are fast and have a very high jump that allows them to travel far distances. They have an above average walking speed and a fast start up for dashing. However, they are incredibly light and can be knocked back with powerful attacks. They have slower falling speed which is both helpful and can hurt the Chorus Kids.

Special Custom Set A

Name Damage Description
Neutral Special Hole in One 8% (golf ball clean), 3% (golf ball late), 10% (golf club clean), 5% (golf club late) One of the Chorus Kids throws up a ball. As soon as the ball is thrown, the other free Chorus Kid will clap on a beat. Hitting the golf club on the exact beat maximizes the damage and the distance of the golf ball. Both the ball and club can do damage. Pressing the neutral special will initiate the attack and pressing the special button again swings the golf club.
Custom 1 Hi Tempo in One 12% (golf ball clean), 4% (golf ball late), 15% (golf club clean), 7% (gold club late) It is much faster with little lag but is more strict with getting the beat on cue. It does more damage as well.
Custom 2 Hole in Two 6% (golf ball clean), 2% (golf ball late), 8% (golf club clean), 4% (gold club late) It does less damage but the other Chorus Kid will throw up a ball after every other beat thus allowing for more balls to be thrown.
Side Special Cheer Readers 5% (flip) Inputting the attack causes the Chorus Kids to summon the Cheer Readers. Hitting the special button on each beat causes a cheer reader to flip a screen much like the mini game. The cheer reader will say "1...2...3! 1...2...3!!" Each flip does a hit that can knock players away. Hitting each special button will strengthen the shield that is erected after the attack. Each missed beat weakens the shield and can be broken easily.
Custom 1 Explosive Readers 18% (all), 10% (only one) Much like the default but the flip doesn't deal any damage. But when the animation is completed, it releases an explosion that deals high damage and knockback that reflects how many beats the player got.
Custom 2 Cheer Speed Readers 2% It does less damage on the flipping part but it is slightly faster. The animations also do not suffer from lag.
Up Special Micro-Row 4% All three Chorus Kids create a line and "row" in midair, Inputting the attack causes the Chorus Kids to initiate the recovery move. Pressing the special button causes them to speed up and do more damage. It does a base damage at 4% and increases by 2% with each successful 100% beat. Failing to press the special on the beat causes the recovery move to fail and the Chorus Kids will descend back to the ground in a free fall state. The player can indicate where they wish to travel to by titling the control stick.
Custom 1 Boosting Micro-Row 3% Each beat pushes the player forward with extended recovery but doesn't increase the damage each time.
Custom 2 Two-Step Micro-Row 1.5% It has two beast next to each other thus needing the player to press both. Each successful beat increases by 1%.
Down Special Fireworks 5%, 10%, 15%, 20%, (clean) 2%, 4%, 6%, 8% (late) The Chorus Kids launches a firework. A rhythm can be heard that goes "boom, boom, boom, boom". Pressing the special button on each of the booms fires off a firework that shoots upwards and explodes when pressed. Pressing on an off-boom detonates the firework but really decreases the power. Detonating it on the boom makes the attack more powerful and damaging.
Custom 1 Soaring Fireworks 3%, 6%, 9%, 12%, (clean) 1.5%, 3%, 4.5%, 6% (late) The attack soars faster but does not increase the tempo. It does deals significantly less damage than the default.
Custom 2 Gigantic Fireworks 25% (all beats), 10% (1 beats) The fireworks travels a certain length and pressing the special button on all of the beats increases its damage with the cut off being 25%. It travels the highest but has significant start up lag.

Special Custom Set B

Name Damage Description
Neutral Special Tambourine 7% The Chorus Kids pulls out tambourines and will hit them. Holding down the special button causes them to shake the tambourines. Pressing down on the control stick during the beat will cause them to clash the tambourines together; generating a sound wave that emanates from around them. Continuing to press down on the beat causes more damage but becomes slower over time.
Custom 1 Dazing Tambourine 0% Instead of the tambourines dealing damage, they cause a daze effect within the opponent. It is slower than the default though. The number of times it is performed on beat has zero bearing on the attacks damage output but it does less daze time with overuse.
Custom 2 Launching Tambourine 3% It does less damage than the default but it has more launching power along with having a larger hit box.
Side Special Sneaky Spirit 9% (clean), 4% (late) Chorus Kids summon a Sneaky Spirit. Holding down the special button causes the Sneaky Spirit to move forward. During this time, there is a beat rhythm and if it is released on that note, the Sneaky Spirit pops upwards; knocking anyone up into the air.
Custom 1 Delayed Sneaky Spirit 12% (clean), 5% (late) Functions much like the default but instead of popping up automatically, the Sneaky Spirit delays itself and then pops up after 5 seconds. It does more damage and knockback as a consequence.
Custom 2 Burying Spirit 10% (clean), 2% (late) It functions much like the default but will bury grounded opponents when it launches upwards or meteor them by appearing upside down.
Up Special See-Saw 7% (clean), 2% (late) A see-saw appears and the main Chorus Kid appears on one end while the other two are on the other. A beat rhythm is heard and jumping on the beat will cause the duo to jump onto the see-saw and launch the main character up into the air. It has six beats total and choosing the last beat launches the main character higher. Jumping on an off-beat results in a very poor launch that is about half the size of a regular jump. Damage outside it also reflective on the timing of the beat with a clean beat doing more damage than an off beat. The two other Chorus Kids will rush to main one after it lands.
Custom 1 Easy See-Saw 4% (clean), 2% (late) The player holds down and releases the two Chorus Kids on the beat. Other than that, it functions much like the default albeit easier to execute and time.

Down Special Ringside 12% (clean), 6% (late) Chorus Kid summons the wrestler from Ringside. He will be standing these and a beat rhythm will accompany his appearance. If an attack connects during one of the beats, he will perform a pose that counters the attack and redirects it back. If it hits on an off-beat, he still counters but as reduced damage and knockback.
Custom 1 Detonating Wrestler 18% (clean), 12% (late) Instead of countering back with a physical attack pose, the wrestler explodes in an inferno, causing high knockback. The tempo is slightly slower.
Custom 2 Patient Ringside 14% (clean), 7% (late) Instead, the wrestler will perform a pose if the player press down special; regardless if on the beat or not. If the pose connects, the wrestler does a melee attack.

Reveal Trailer

"Altogether Now"

Time: 2:45 Scene: A pure white hallway

The trailer opens with Mario, Link, Samus, Pikachu, Kirby and Takamaru walking down a white hallway. When they reach the end of the hallway they hear an 'Aaahhh!' noise. Mario rushes forward to the noise, and skids to a halt at a pure white door, which has writing above it which reads 'Glee Club'. Link, Samus, Pikachu, Kirby and Takamaru catch up to him and listen to the strange noises behind the door. They seem to be singing seperately, one after the other. Mario takes out a master key from his hat, unlocks the door and pushes it open very slowly. The door then squeaks, and Mario leaps back, as the singing immediately stops. In the top left corner of the screen was a little fuchsia P that suddenly disappeared when Mario made the door creak. A voice then says 'Together now', and Mario is instantly knocked backwards into the wall behind him as a large sound wave erupts from the centre of the room. The camera whirls round to reveal the three Chorus Kids, and their conductor. The conductor looks very angry with his baton raised, while the Chorus Kids get into a battle stance. It then fades in to some gameplay footage. The song 'Lonely Storm' starts.

  • The Chorus Kids fall onto the Night Walk stage, and do their Up Taunt.
  • The trio perform multiple smash attacks on Mario, Link, Samus, Pikachu, Kirby and Takamaru, attacking in different directions.
  • Bayonetta runs forward but is grabbed by the main Chorus Kid. The second Chorus Kid then punches her.
  • The Chorus Kids perform Hole in One on Yoshi, and then send a Sneaky Spirit after Yuuri.
  • Two sets of Chorus Kids attempt to counter each other with Ringside.
  • On Mario Galaxy, the Chorus Kids collect a Karate Joe trophy.
  • The scene then shifts to the handheld version, where the Chorus Kids are standing in front of the Clappy Trio. They jump, and then land on the Double Date beach. They swiftly shield a football (soccer ball).
  • The Chorus Kids obtain a Smash Ball and perform Glee Club. Lucario, Zelda and Olimar are caught in the song's radius and are knocked away.
  • Right after they finish, they perform their Left Taunt, then Jigglypuff appears and puts them to sleep with Sing.

Then the Super Smash Bros. 5 logo fades in.

In a post-credits scene, a mockup of the rating screen from Rhythm Heaven appears. It reads:

                    Master Hand's thoughts
        You can handle interruptions well!
        And, you can fight like a hero.
        Furthermore, your defensive skills are outstanding.
